The Islanders have signed Nick Leddy to a seven-year, $38.5M contract extension.
Leddy, 23, was set to become a restricted free agent at the end of the season, but is now inked through the 2021-22 season. He has scored eight goals with 17 assists and a plus-12 rating in 61 games this season.
The Islanders have acquired Nick Leddy and Kent Simpson from the Blackhawks for TJ Brennan, Ville Pokka and goaltender Anders Nilsson.
Leddy, 23, had seven goals with 24 assists (31 points) in 82 games with the Blackhawks last season. Leddy has never missed a regular season game in three NHL seasons and should be in the Isles' top-4 with a lot of power-play time.
